by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Swedish Power metal heroes and history buffs are back, and like their previous album 2019’s ‘The Great War’, this new tenth assault, ‘The War To End All Wars’, deals with the First World War. The band had plenty more stories to tell from that time, so they continued with this theme, and the result is some of their best and most epic tales of battles yet.

REVIEW: Swallow The Sun – “Moonflowers”


by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Finnish death-doom metal pioneers, Swallow The Sun return from the darkest crevices with their eighth album ‘Moonflowers’. The new offering is the follow-up to their chart-topping Finnish Grammy-nominated 2019 album ‘When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light’. ‘Moonflowers’ remarkably manages to turn up the emotional heaviness expected from the quintet. The album’s artwork added to this grim sentiment as guitarist and primary songwriter Juha Raivio created it using dried up flowers he collected along with his blood to paint the moon, making the image both tragic and elegant, much like their music.

by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Finnish black metallers emerge from the darkness after twenty-three years of silence with their highly anticipated and long overdue fourth album ‘Angel Of Carnage Unleashed’.

SILVER TONGUE DEVIL Blood Drenched Sex Magick REVIEW


Silver tongue devil, a heavy metal/blackened thrash metal band hailing out of Dallas Texas. They are bringing forth this song previously released on their album Pax Satanica. Right away, Blood Drenched Sex Magick (BDSM for short, going forward in this review) is like a kick straight to your teeth. It’s up front, it’s loud, it’s your face, and it’s intense from start to finish. A very vocally driven song, it reminds me a lot of an earlier song of theirs “Greyest of Skies” with how the lyrics are brought out and how the song itself unfolds. There is an energy in this song that isn’t very common, and it’s easy to get lost and get drawn in when listening which I thoroughly enjoyed.
